Thirsty Thursday--Lemonade Margaritas

I had originally planned for these super delicious little margaritas to be shared last week.
I had made a batch of my lemonade and had a little left over.
And since I'm a margarita addict,
 I thought why not lemon instead of lime.

Lemonade + tequila = perfect combo

However, 
after looking at the pictures that I took of them I decided that maybe I shouldn't drink margaritas while photographing them!!

Lesson learned.

So I decided to sacrifice and make a few more of these tasty treats so that they could be shared this week.
I know, I'm a giver.


**NO MARGARITAS WERE CONSUMED IN THE TAKING OF THESE PICTURES**

(I waited until I took the pictures and then they were downed!!)

Lemonade Margaritas


Makes 1 margarita

3 ounces lemonade
3 ounces tequila (I used Casa Noble Silver--my fave)
1 ounce Grand Marnier
a few dashes of Orange Bitters

Garnish with lemon sugar**, salt, and a slice of lemon.

Combine the lemonade, tequila, and Grand Marnier in a cocktail shaker full of ice.  Mix well and pour into a glass rimmed with lemon sugar, salt, and a slice of lemon.  Add a few dashes of Orange Bitters.

Add a little more lemon juice if your lemonade is overly sweet. 


**Lemon Sugar-combine 1/4 cup sugar with zest of 1 lemon.  Allow to sit for 1 week.



Enjoy,
